Susie's Honey Maple Cookies

Susie's Honey Maple Cookies

Introduction

This is a wholesome chewy cookie that satisfies the sweet tooth, but isn't just empty calories--it's a great way to incorporate whole grains. Substitute a multi-grain mix for added nutrition and fiber. Add mini chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or coconut for variation.

    Sounds good, I plan to try these. Those of you with negative comments, please realize if a person is craving sweets, this is far better than many other choices. Sometimes we are also cooking for other family members who are not dieting, and all can share the same "healthier" treats! - 3/25/13

    Its junk. I love using SparkPeople, but I have yet to understand why they allow the posting of junk recipes. There's nothing clean about brown sugar or flour. Multi-grain does not alway = healthy. It must be whole grain. And really, 100 calories for 1 unfilling cookie. Think for yourself! - 3/25/13

    I substituted Splenda Brown Sugar and Egg Beaters but didn't change anything else. They were wonderful. - 12/11/12

    I like the idea of using whole grains, but not shortening.

    "Margarine, vegetable shortening and most commercial baked goods contain these artificially hardened fats and, along with them, TFAs. TFAs are just as bad if not worse for the heart and arteries than saturated fats. - Dr.Weil - 12/18/12

    These were easy to make & tasty - great for times I need a small treat. For those saying that SP should be ashamed to allow junk & "not clean" recipes to be posted, try not reading recipes with "Cookie" in the title. It should save some frustration. - 12/11/13

    These are outstanding! The calorie count is a bit high per cookie -I'd like to figure a way to reduce the calorie count - but the flavor is wonderful and they're "substantial" -- excellent! - 1/10/13

    I LOVE these! I used agave instead of maple syrup and I added 1/4 cup of ground flax seeds. Also, had to substitute shortening for marjorine. Delicious! Like a variation on an oatmeal scotchie.

    These sound terrific, could I use muesli instead of the cereal and butter as I have never seen shortening for sale in Australia. - 12/11/12

  • I didn't care for how bland these were. Feel like they need a bit of a punch from a spice, maybe. Or perhaps more maple syrup instead of the honey? - 12/19/14

    Why in the world would you consider this healthy with almost 2 cups of sugar in the recipe-THINK AGAIN! - 12/13/13

    It is sad that some people are narrow-minded and can't learn to substitute good items for what they call bad ones. I have not made this yet but I will and if I prefer not to use shortening I will use 1/2c. unsweetened applesauce in its place like I have in other recipes and they have been good. - 12/12/13

  • I haven't made these yet but I agree with the comments I think these are wonderful. i was wondering if it was Demerrara sugar or best brown sugar as I think we use different terminology in Canada. - 12/11/13

  • For those who just want to have a cookie and have budgeted it into their daily calories, this is a great sounding recipe. I'm glad to see the high oats content. I'll substitute gluten-free flour for the flour as both DH and I are gluten-free. Definitely going to try this! - 12/11/13

    I seriously doubt that adding a CUP of shortening makes anything "healthy", even if it has "whole grains"! Needless to say, I will not be making this particular cookie! - 3/25/13

    I 'm not crazy about recipes that depend on totally unrealistic serving sizes to meet a low calorie ideal. How many people were actually able to make 60 servings out of this recipe? Mine got stale long before I could finish what I made and resisting scarfing down 10 in one sitting is tough. - 3/25/13

    I hate to be critical but how is this recipe healthy? Sugar, honey, honey, and shortening? I'd prefer to avoid foods like this. - 3/25/13
